Man attempts to discover the essence of existence, 
the principles of being, to discover the holy ineffable 
dimension of reality, to delve into the realization of 
the mystery of his precarious existence and its inscrutable 
meaning, to establish the unique and ultimate 
sovereign embodiment. 

Man's search for G-d leads the mind to the summit 
of thinking, creates in us the understanding that 
religion has its own scope, perspective and goal. 
It exposes us to the majesty and mystery in the 
presence of which the mind is not deaf to that which 
transcends the mind. 

It is to this search that we dedicate our yearbook 
and our lives.

The four-year English courses help prepare the student for 
the rigorous State Scholarship Examinations and the College 
Boards. Formal grammar is given in the first two years, while 
the last two are devoted to classical American and English 
literature. Not content with having students learn merely 
by rote, the department also emphasizes the creative side of 
writing by assigning numerous compositions every term. 

In addition to the regular sessions, weekly class meetings 
are held as lessons in democracy.

LANGUAGES 



Knowledge of a foreign language is a necessity in our times, 
and our language department is doing much to enable 
students to attain this knowledge. Aside from the com- 
pulsory four years of Hebrew language and history, two-year 
courses are offered in French, Spanish and Latin. A staff of 
proficient instructors assures pupils an excellent background 
in foreign culture as well as the spoken and written word.

MATHEMATICS ^X^. 




Rabbi Hyman Heifitz 



The increasing importance of mathematics in our society has 
aroused an interest in this field among a growing percentage 
of the student body. The YUHSB mathematics department 
is comprised of a group of outstanding teachers who com- 
petently pass on their knowledge to the students. Two and 
one-half years of mathematics are required for graduation, 
but a complex range of courses from elementary algebra 
to a college course in analytic geometry and calculus is 
made available to capable and interested students. 





Rabbi David Bohensky 



IVIr. Samuel Lebowitz 





Mr. Seymour Parness 



SCIENCE 



Mr. George Davidson 



Mr. David Schiff 








With the advent of a new and amply equipped modem labo- 
ratory, YUHSB students have had the opportunity for the 
first time to worli independently on experiments. The new 
laboratory has also encouraged more students to take elec- 
tive courses in chemistry and physics, and has necessitated 
the addition of a second chemistry class. General science 
and biology, which are given in the first and second years, 
are required for graduation and give the students an excel- 
lent background in the expanding world of science.

SOCIAL 




^ STUDIES 



Students at YUHSB have three and one-half years in which 
to enrich their knowledge of the Social Sciences. The courses 
follow the progress of man from the beginnings of time to 
the present day. The Social Studies class also presents the 
student with an opportunity to offer tentative solutions to 
world problems. 






Mr. Morris Purcell 



/Ir. David Getz 



ART 



Although it is the smallest in the school, the Minors Depart- 
ment ably serves the needs of the students in art, music and 
physical education. The most prominent aspects of the art 
course are its emphasis on the fundamentals and history of 
art, while much emphasis in the music program is placed 
on the appreciation of the famous classical works. In physical 
education; development of the body and the values of clean 
sportsmanship are stressed. 





Mr. Harry Allan 



GUIDANCE 




Rabbi Matthew Clark 



The guidance department under the aegis of Rabbi Matthew 
Clark has aided many students in the solution of their aca- 
demic and personal problems. Expanding to meet the needs 
of the times, the department has worked out a complete and 
unique card system for the student body. Originally insti- 
tuted to orient freshmen and sophomores, the department 
now performs the particular function of helping upper class- 
men in their choice of college and vocation.

Serving as chief negotiator between an active student body 
and the administration, Mrs. Yetta Rosenman, secretary to 
the principal, has succeeded in both her official and unofficial

scholastic and extra-curricular ac- 
tivities. A member of the notorious 
Triumverate, he will be remem-

as ex-Vice President of another in- 
famous group known as Arista. In- 
telligence, initiative, individuality 
and his freestyle will aid him in his 
career at M.I.T.

to use for members of the faculty. 
He will continue to keep his class-

Lenny always managed to stay 
at the top of his class while devot- 
ing a good deal of his time to extra- 
curricular activities. Serving as 
President of Arista he played a 
significant role in elevating the 
status of the minyan. His profici- 
ency in mathematics as evidenced 
by his captaincy of the math team 
will be further developed at 
Columbia.

Scholarship exams while playing 
an active role on the swimming 
team. He will continue to run 
ahead of his math class at Brook- 
lyn College.

Allan's career at YUHSB was 
characterized by a high scholastic 
rating, by his knowledge of Russian 
and Yiddish, by his unique "nega- 
tive attitude," and by the mono- 
grammed furniture found in every 
corner of the school. He rose to 
fame in his senior year after being 
elected G.O. veep and later ascend- 
ing to the presidency. Though 
interviewed by Yeshiva without 
even applying, Allan will attend 
Brooklyn College.

Arch enemy of the faculty, 
Jakie showed them who was boss 
with his booming 704 College Board 
average; Mr. Becker never re- 
covered. A fiend for exercise, he 
was forced to spend his last period 
walking across the room because 
his lunch period was taken up 
opening lockers. Tipped off about 
the Yeshiva interviews, he was the 
only one who came dressed for 
the occasion. He will follow his 
brothers to l&&th Street where he 
will walk his dog.

Simcha will be best remembered 
for his all-around skill as "over- 
seer" on the basketball court. He 
is one of the few players in the 
history of the school to score in 
double figures and excel in Gemara 
at the same time. Laurie will con-

Warren, who diuided his time 
between travelling and the labor-

Les' unusual way of doing things 
and succeeding at them was a con- 
stant source for amusement. His 
ability on the swimming team 
proved his versatility; his flair 
for science coupled with his natural 
curiosity should prove the right in- 
gredients for a medical career after 
Brooklyn.

Harvey, who is usually to be

lunch, seldom pays for his own 
game. His all-around excellence in 
athletic activities won for him the 
captaincy of both the swimming 
and bowling teams. He will major 
in business administration while 
taking advantage of the City Col- 
lege pool.

Ten O'clock Scholar Hirschman 
beat the odds and won the battles 
singlehanded. Possessing a fine 
mind for Talmud and fortified with 
myriad imaginative excuses, he 
fought valiantly for his position as 
Public Defendant. Four years of 
Septy, Doc and Yoc— topped off by 
a stretch in the Highest Shiur— 
mellowed the qualities and broad- 
ened the capabilities he will exhibit 
in Yeshiva next September.

Elliot paid a visit to YUHSB in 
his sophomore year and liked it 
so much that he decided to stay 
on. Always willing to argue about 
anything, he was usually found 
proving his point to some reluctant 
classmate and was a constant 
source of humor at Chagigas. Elliot 
will continue to perplex his instruc- 
tors at Brooklyn.

only commuter who has survived 4

Armed with many friends and a 
warm personality, he will enter 
Yeshiva next fall.

science will be of help to him at 
City College where he will study 
aeronautical engineering.

Hank, one of the most amicable 
boys in the senior class, is one of 
the few YUHSB students possess- 
ing talent in the field of art. He 
was an invaluable aid in the pro- 
duction of the Elchanite and has 
displayed additional talent at Vari- 
ety Night as a member of the Glee 
Club. He will major in Commercial 
Art at Hunter.

Ping-pong champion and chess

Coop's Calculated Calculus Class 
while laughing his way through 
every other period. The menace of 
the basketball court, he was the 
most feared player in the school. 
He will attend classes at Brooklyn 
with flying shirt-tails and a flushed 
face.

PROVIDING a showcase for the finest achievements of 
the class of 1961, this year's Elchanite attempts to con- 
tinue the tradition of seven consecutive Medalist ratings 
while reaching new heights in quality and innovation. 

Under the editorship of Leonard Feiner and Walter Reich, 
the yearbook's design and shape departed substantially from 
its predecessors. Supervising all the various stages of the 
yearbook's production was Advisor Mr. Harry Allan who 
proved to be of invaluable assistance.

IN addition to co-ordinating extra-curricular activities, the 
General Organization acts as the Haison agent between the 
administration and the students in attempts to present the 
student-body's view on matters pertaining to its welfare. 

The chief executive of the G.O. is the President, whose 
election is the highlight of the entire school term. The elec- 
tions provide an outlet whereby the candidates show their 
originality by devising signs to capture the imagination and 
the votes of the electorate. With the passing years, the Com- 
mission system, for which there was a provision in the Con- 
stitution, has gradually withered away, with the President 
assuming the powers that they formerly held. 

As always, one of the most important activities of the 
student community was the assembly program, ranging this 
year from an Awards Assembly to a talk by a representative 
from Bache and Co. about stocks and the stock market. One 
of the most memorable events was the gathering in honor 
of the Bar-Mitzvah Year of the State of Israel at which Rabbi 
Heifetz delivered a stirring speech. 

The annual affairs of the CO., such as the Chagigot, were 
carried on with nary a hitch, while the perennial compulsory 
club program was unceremoniously scrapped. The G.O. meet- 
ings were conducted with order and decorum under the able 
guidance of our faculty advisor, Mr. Joseph Strum.

SQUAD 





THE Service Squad, law-enforcement arm of the General 
Organization, carries out its duties in conjunction with 
the Student Court. Among its many activities are keeping the 
school clean, apprehending belligerents and insuring proper 
decorum at assemblies. In addition to all this, it guards the 
gates and prevents students from leaving the school either 
at recess or lunchtime. Anyone receiving a summons from a 
member of the Service Squad is required to attend a Student 
Court meeting and hear sentence passed upon him. 

A new innovation was introduced this year as representa- 
tion from each class was restricted so as to insure a more 
varied assortment of its members. This helped this year's 
Service Squad to reach new heights in efficiency.

ACTING to promote general scholarship, Arista plays an 
integral part in our school program. It is an assemblage 
of those students who have displayed leadership in school 
activities along with high scholastic achievement. 

Aside from rewarding its members with prestige and recog- 
nition, the honor society conducts a program of coaching 
students in subjects in which they are deficient. 

Arista's worthwhile activities were highlighted during the 
past year by a visit to the New York Times Building, and 
intellectually stimulating meetings ranging from discussions 
on Israeli politics to the presidential election to a talk by a 
guest speaker on the opportunities for orthodox Jews in 
science and industry. 

Serving as faculty advisor to Arista is Mr. Samuel Lebo- 
witz who has held this post since Arista's inception. Officers 
elected for the fall term were: Leonard A. Feiner, President; 
Allan Roy Freedman, Vice-President; Abraham Greenberg, 
Secretary. During the spring term these offices were held by 
Abraham Greenberg, Melvyn Barenholtz, and Ronald Tauber.

ONE of the major aspects of the school's extra-curricular 
program is our award-winning newspaper, The Topics. 
Now in its eighth year of publication, the paper has not 
only supplied students with a comprehensive coverage of all 
news items, but has also, in its editorial column, campaigned 
for the welfare of the student body and for a better under- 
standing between student and administration leaders. 

An important reason for the popularity of The Topics is 
its fine feature department which emphasizes the creative 
aspect in writing and includes everything from short stories 
to satires and poems. The once-a-year Purim issue, known 
this year as "The Huzzy," was one of the most hilarious 
in the paper's history. 

The Topics is a member of the Columbia Scholastic Press 
Association and, during our four years, has been awarded 
three First Place and one Medalist rating in the Association's 
nationwide contests. To provide prospective reporters with 
the opportunity of learning about the many phases of journal- 
ism, Editor-in-Chief Abraham Greenberg supervised a Sun- 
day Journalism Club under the watchful eye of Faculty 
Advisor Mr. Sidney Gold who also provided helpful hints 
when the paper was about to go to press.

CELEBRATING its thirteenth year along with Medinat 
Israel, Kolenu published two issues this year instead 
of the usual one. Under the guidance of its faculty advisor, 
Rabbi Joseph Epstein, Kolenu once again won a First Place 
Award from the Columbia Scholastic Press Association with 
nine hundred and forty out of a possible one thousand points 
scored. 

As in previous years, the contents ranged from original 
writings to "Chidushei Torah" and articles about Hebrew 
activities within the school. 

The editors have received quite a number of congratulatory 
notes from prominent Jewish leaders and Hebraists with 
the publication of each issue, showing that Kolenu is being 
more widely known and read throughout the Jewish world.

APPEARING once a week, the Topics Bulletin keeps the 
students abreast of all school events. Under the editor- 
ship of Jerry Weinstein, the Bulletin appeared with a record 
thirty five issues, including two election specials, a student 
poll on the national Presidential election, and a joint Topics- 
Topics Bulletin issue about the State Regents and Science 
Scholarship results. 

Under the motto "Vox Populi Omnia Vincit," the Bulle- 
tin's scathing editorials left definite imprints on the opinions 
of YUHSB students, who devoured each issue with increased 
interest. Entered for the first time in the Columbia Scholastic 
Press Association, the Bulletin achieved a Second Place 
rating with 844 points out of a possible 1000.

SET against the dynamic background of modern science, 
the Atom brings to the student body a personal acquain- 
tance with events of the day. Synthetics, medicine, space 
science, philosophy — these are the sources from which the 
Atom draws its material. And it is in the Atom that students 
find personal involvement with scientific problems and a type 
of exposure that breeds enthusiasm and interest. Its new 
and more appealing format firmly entrenched the Atom in 
the ranks of the major school publications and gained for it 
a larger reading body and a more enthusiastic following.

MATH 
TEAM 




THE recently organized Math Team enjoyed its second 
year of competition in the Inter-scholastic Math League. 
Student interest in it has been mounting increasingly, lead- 
ing to wider student participation. 

Under league rules, five students are chosen to officially 
compete in each contest, while the remainder of the team 
uses the tests as practice for future competition. Each meet 
consists of different problems designed to test the solver's 
facility with mathematical concepts. 

Coached by Mr. Louis Cooper and captained by Leonard 
Feiner, the Math Team compiled a commendable record 
and looks forward to an increasingly important place in the 
school's roster of extra-curricular activities.

As ONE of the more important student functions, debat- 
ing is the most popular extra-curricular activity. Intra- 
mural debates held in the home team's English class, offer 
the students an opportunity to gain experience in effective 
expression. At the end of each term, a debate is held posing 
the Junior and Senior league winners against each other in 
order to determine the school champion.

SPRING 
TERM 



The Varsity Debating Team participated in many Inter- 
Yeshiva League debates. Led by Ronald Tauber and Ronald 
Liebis, fall and spring term Debating Managers, the school 
team compiled an excellent record and led the League. 

A Public Speaking Club under the guidance of Mr. Arthur 
Becker proved to be an excellent training ground for lower 
classmen having an interest in debating. A newly formed 
Junior Varsity and a series of assemblies featuring debates 
helped further student interest in debating.

HIGHLIGHTING both the fall and spring terms are the 
Chagigot, organized mixtures of songs, music, food and 
comic plays which impart in each student the gay spirit of 
Chanukah and Purim. The Chanukah Chagiga, under the 
direction of Carmi Horowitz and Jerry Weinstein, presented 
the traditional songs and music in addition to a lampooning 
skit entitled "The Senate Informeration Committee," de- 
picting the results of an investigation into some student 
activities. 

The Purim Chagiga offered a large variety of songs played 
by the I.B.T.C. school band. 





THE Yeshiva Organization Commission, under the leader- 
ship of Rabbi P. Yogel, is the coordinating body of our 
school's religious activities. Included in its program are the 
Minyan, Mishmar and the Kashruth Commission. 

The Minyan has reached its peak this year. From forty to 
fifty boys attend each morning, deriving all the benefits of 
"tfilah betzibur" and then being treated to breakfast by 
the school. Rabbi Faivushevitz is advisor to the Minyan. 

Perhaps the most important function of the Y.O.C. is the 
Kashruth Commission. This group makes sure that all foods 
sold in the lunchroom and candy machines comply with the 
highest standards of kashruth. Letters are sent periodically 
to the producers of these products to see that these stand- 
ards are met. 

Finally, it is interesting to note that this year the Y.O.C.'s 
charity drive has netted a sum almost unparalleled in our 
school's history.

Many familiar personalities were featured, with alumni 
Benjy Hulkower M.C.ing and drumming and Larry Ackerman 
providing comic touches to the proceedings. Undergraduate 
entertainment was highlighted by Andy Schnure, the Glee 
Club led by Gerald Wolf and Myron Schonfeld, the school 
band under Carmi Horowitz and Wayne Kerness, and an 
Israeli dance group performing imaginative "rikkudim." 

The show, witnessed by a near-capacity crowd, was held in 
modern Lefferts Junior High School and proved to be both 
a theatrical and financial success.

HEBREW 



liBRaRy 







THE Hebrew Library evolved this year from being merely 
an aid to the school's instructors into an important source 
of reading pleasure for the student body as well. Many new 
books were added to the shelves which already hold more 
than tour thousand tomes. Among the new editions is a new 
Judaica section consisting of books in English on assorted 
Jewish topics. 

In addition, several translations of such world-famous 
classics as "The Last of the Mohicans" and "The Count of 
Monte Cristo" were acquired which has given new impetus 
to the circulation. 

The Library, under the capable advice of Rabbi J. D. 
Epstein, has recently devised a new shelving system which 
facilitates the finding of books and helps in ministering to the 
students' needs.

FAITHFULLY keeping apace of its importance, the Eng- 
lish Library has once again added substantially to its 
wide range of volumes. More than five hundred new books, 
ranging fi'om astronomy to zoology, have been added to 
the library in the last year. Another newly acquired inval- 
uable asset of the library is its wide selection of informative 
magazines, including Time, Current History and Scientific 
American. 

The main task of the English Library Squad is to pro- 
vide the most efficient and rewarding service possible for 
the student body. The Library Squad has been reorganized 
into five independent groups, making administration easier 
and lessening the burdens on its faculty advisor, Mr. Bassell.

PURRED on by greater student support, the YUHSB 
' Chess Team, after having a poor start, ended with its 
best season. With a A'^/z-'^Vz record, it has tied for the 
coveted championship, and will share the trophy with R.J.J. 
Led by Junior Mike Handelsman and the fine play of 
Wilham Caplow and Jerome Mehler, the chessman achieved 
their two most dramatic and significant victories at Flatbush 
and R.J.J, by 3-2 scores.

THE J.V. plays an important role in YUHSB athletics as 
a training ground for future varsity ballplayers. Under 
the tutelage of Michael Ostrow, the team had a 5-4 record. 
The schedule included games with the junior varsities of 
HILI and Flatbush and other teams from the local Young 
Israels. Groundwork has been laid for a J.V. League running 
in accordance with Varsity League games. 

This year's team was led by sophomores Leon Pechter and 
Eli Unsig, who were assisted by the fine play of freshman 
Sam Borger. With several of this year's freshmen returning 
next year, it is hoped that the team will show an even better 
record in the future.

AFTER upsetting Flatbush in the playoffs 63-58, 
YUHSB's resourceful hoopsters then went on to cop 
its first league championship by defeating HILI 52-42 on 
the Garden floor. 

The Yugars completed the season with a disappointing 
4 and 6 league record, the only victories coming at the 
expense of R.J.J, and Ramaz. On the basis of these four 
victories the Yugars ended the regular season in a third 
place tie with HILI, whom we defeated in a special playoff 
game 45-35. 

Responsible for the team's success was the tutelage of 
Irv Forman, who used a pressing two-one-two zone defense 
to good advantage in the playoffs. 

High scorers for the season were Norm Ringel and Barry 
Stieglitz with 346 and 169 points respectively. Co-Captains 
Laurie Garber and Barry Stieglitz provided the squad with 
the sparks and leadership that is always needed to make a 
championship team. The school scoring record was broken 
when Norm Ringel dunked 47 points against Ramaz in the 
season opener. 

Special accolades were awarded to Norm Ringel, the 
league's leading scorer, as the most valuable player in the 
All-Star Game, and Laurie Garber, as the most valuable 
player in the championship game.

SWIM 





COACHED by Allan Swedler and led by Captains H. 
Gralla and W. WolfE, the swimming team has compiled 
the finest record in league history. 

The swimming season came to an abrupt end after YUHSB 
had competed in only five of the eight meets scheduled. Four 
of these meets had resulted in victories and it was obvious 
that the championship had gone to YUHSB for the second 
consecutive year. The other teams in the league then con- 
ceded the next three meets and the aquamen finished the 
season with a record of seven first places and one second 
place. 



During the course of the year H. Gralla, freestyle, and 
W. Wolff, backstroke, proved beyond a doubt that they were 
the fastest in the league in their respective events. Co-Captain 
M. Barenholtz went undefeated in the two-lap freestyle, 
while L. Goldsmith swam successfully in other freestyle 
events. Undergraduates M. Schlusselberg, H. Ishofsky and 
M. Benzon contributed the final push necessary for the 
championship.

FIRMLY entrenched on the roster of school sports, the 
Bowhng Team made a fine showing this year and ended 
with a record of seven wins and three losses. Practicing reg- 
ularly at their home lanes, the Kenmore Keglers ended ofT 
the season with five straight victories. Among the top scorers 
were Captain Harvey Gralla and Martin Soshtain.

FORMING an important part of the athletic program, our 
intramural competition provides the average student with 
experience in team competition. The basketball tournaments 
form the core of the program, while individual competitions 
in ping-pong, handball and foul-shooting are conducted on 
an elimination basis. Victorious in basketball was class SB, 
while Howard Lasher and William Werblowsky excelled in 
ping-pong.

LITERATURE 



Rhapsody on a Summer's Night 



by Walter Reich 




Silently we rushed against the still-warm grass 
reaching out for ghosts with trembling hands 

Spreading out oiir arms 

till we embraced the world— 

But found only goblins and didn't care 

Why do you stutter there 
You are not afraid 
Why do you cry 

There is a tree singing 

There is a song in a bird's winging 

Expanding to the black enameled sky 

A forest lake 

three mountains and the dawn 
Enclosed the stillness 

with a muted damn 
And fused free spirits 

to incarnate law 
Liquid ground 

liquid ground 
Enveloped our liquid laughing hearts 

What do you see 

Just nothing 

What do you feel 

Just everything 

A hurricane song 

A heat lightning song 
I see 
Water from some place 
The mind's eye dimmed and dull 



Cancion de Cuna 



by Mr. Isaac J. Cantor 



Duerme, nene, duerme, carisimo. 

La vida es sin miedo; 
Porque la mano que te cunea 

Te seca las gotas, querido. 

Que los dngeles te protejan, mi alma 
Por todas las horas, mi cielo — 

Amor paternal, corazon maternal 
Te damos los dos, mi nino. 

Que para ti el sol siempre brille — 

El cielo sin nubes; 
Buena suerte te sign los pasos — 

Duerme, queridisimo eres. 



Cradle 
Song 



Sleep, my babe, my own, my sweetheart 

Life yet has no fears; 
For the hand that rocks your cradle 

Dries away your tears. 

Angels keep you and protect you 

All the long night through; 
A father's love and a mother's heart — 

We give them both to you. 

The sun ever shine for you, my dear one. 
Your skies ever cloudless be — 

Good fortune follow all your footsteps — 
Peace may you ever see! 




HERITAGE 



by Allan Roy Freedman 



RAGNAR paused from his plowing for a moment. Strange. 
That glint in the sky reminded him of the legend. He 
began to day-dream, to float back to his childhood. He could 
almost hear the voice of the elder-schoolmaster as he spoke 
to his pupils of the great happening and exhibited the 
antiquity to them. 

"It was almost one hundred and twenty years ago, four 
generations past," said the balladeer rubbing his antennae 
together, "that the gods came down out of the sky in a 
great silver bird, taught us the mysteries of mechanics, and 
left us this relic as a symbol of their power. To further show 
their might, shortly after they left a bright light which 
obscured the sun, burned steadily for three days." Ragnar 
remembered staring in awe at the relic and at its inscription. 
He remembered working for weeks and months during all 
his free time in a vain attempt to decipher the inscription, 
and to discover what function the machine performed, but 
to no avail had he labored, for at the end of his effort he 
was as much in the dark as before he started. 

"Oh baloney," he said to himself suddenly, "how could 
anyone, even a child, believe such a ridiculous story." He 
remembered when he had first learned to doubt the fable . . . 

"You mean to say you actually believe all this rot?" he 
heard his room-mate saying, "But, surely by now you realize 
that it's all a lot of mumbo- jumbo designed to keep everyone 
enslaved to the priests' commands." Ragnar's family was 
very religious and they had never rationally discussed with 
him the origins of the legend. He had been taught to beheve 
without questioning. As he had previously believed im- 
plicitly he now scoffed with just as much vigor. The author- 
ities had caught him attempting to convert others to his 
heretical ideas. He had been expelled from school, and be- 
cause he was not able to continue his education, he had 
actually been sentenced to a life of manual labor, devoid of 



any intellectual experiences. He had drifted from the farms to 
the cities, harvesting, tightening nuts on automobiles, with- 
out any thought except where his next meal would come 
from, where he would try for work next. He ambled on 
through life without any goals in mind and just living for 
the moment. 

Now, however, a spark of his old intellectual curiosity 
overtook him. "I wonder what the real story was without any 
of the religious trappings. Wonder if they ever translated the 
damn inscription." He tried to conjure up in the mind the 
forms of the letters he had seen so long ago on that vestige 
of another civilization. "Ragnar! Ragnar! If you don't start 
plowing that field I'll have your blasted hide." Ragnar slowly 
arose, his train of thought broken, and dreamt no more. 

Ragnar the Martian would never know about the alien, 
yet so similar culture of Earth. Nor would he know that the 
fable was based on the fact of the first and last UN expe- 
dition to Mars. Nor would he realize that the great light in 
the sky 118 years prior to this day had been Earth in its 
final agony. Nor would he ever be able to read or under- 
stand the inscription on this, the last trace of vanished 
Terra, "Made in Japan."

I See 
A 

New Light 



"^^^ — ■§[ 



by Walter Reich 



I see a new hght, rolling sun on powdered sky, 

Rolling heart on rolling tongue, majestic heart, 

Heart shining on harp-music, shining on the rolled fold of 

afternoon, 
A new light, throwing white shadows on soldered heads: 
A coming abnegation, a coming result, a coming prolicide: 
Seeping out with heart-music courageous light. 
I see a new light, white moon on white sand, 
New time-flutter, canvas-masted anthem for mouth agape, 
Tuning fork and bird whistle, muted panorama: 
Come outside and see dawn, the promise of new hght; 
See the burning heat of roused eruption — 
Touch the piercing shaft of rushing hope: 
Blue paint on blue pigment, orange hue on orange blend, 
Lightning sign on static symbol. 
I see a new light, in memory of the old. 



Before 



The 



by Mel Benzon and Milton Elbogen 



Beginning 



IN THE BEGINNING G-D CREATED THE HEAVENS 
AND THE EARTH. And the earth was hlessed with 
vegetation, animals and lastly, man. 

During man's infancy, he relied solely on the Almighty's 
gifts of protection and provision, but he was alone and help- 
less. And thus G-d bestowed upon man a mate and he was 
no longer alone. 

As time went on, man's species was fruitful and multiplied. 
And as man multiplied, he gradually passed from infancy to 
childhood. He learned how to harness the forces of G-d 
that were about him; he learned to till the soil and domes- 
ticate the animals of the field. His quest for knowledge could 
not be satiated. 

Man unified and glorified the earth, through villages and 
cities, countries and empires. It prospered and progressed 
through him, through his inventions, buildings and industries. 
Man was able to travel to all parts of the globe. He built 
floating machines and flying machines, digging machines and 
building machines and . . . alas, DESTROYING MA- 
CHINES; machines that could rip apart the human body. 
So, as man propagated his kind, he also destroyed it. He 
destroyed it because he was of a selfish breed, wanting to 
build his empires and enlarge his possessions. At first the 
battles were slight and insignificant. They were fought with 



crude weapons, capable of killing one man at a time. But, 
parallel to the progressive growth of his industry of improve- 
ment, was the progressive skill of his industry of destruction; 
thus, new and better weapons were evolved. From guns to 
tanks, from bombs to the supreme weapon. What was that 
supreme weapon? Man did not know. He only knew that it 
was capable of destroying the entire earth. 

There were intermittent periods of war. But soon, peace 
was the intermittent period between great periods of war. 
And then there was no peace, only war; war filled with death 
and decay, horror and havoc. 

War . . . amidst this war it came. The supreme weapon. 
Never did the earth know such a powerful force. Was it 
man-made, or was it the wrath of G-D sent upon man from 
heaven? For the heavens shook as did the earth. 

Then, all was quiet; quiet and still. All was still, still . . . 
and time disappeared. The world was without form, and 
void was upon the earth. 

Suddenly, out of the vast stillness there was a movement. 
Disorder slowly evolved into order. Time returned and — 

IN THE BEGINNING G-D CREATED THE HEAVENS 
AND THE EARTH. AND THE EARTH WAS BLESSED 
WITH VEGETATION, ANIMALS AND LASTLY, MAN. 



The Prospector 



by Isaac B. Gottlieb 




The sun beat down upon his head, 

With each new ray his head grew sore. 

He dragged his feet along the sand, 
Each step smaller than that before. 

He knew that water lay not far; 

In truth it lay but in his mind. 
For all who lived in the desert knew 

That water lay— five miles behind. 



He fell most softly in the sand 

His flaming lips touched burning grains. 
And with that last eternal kiss. 

His life relinquished human claims. 

The blood-red jewels rolled from his hand 
The sun beat down upon them, too. 

They took the sun into themselves, 
And gave it out in a rich, red hue. 

Then the sun went home beyond the clouds. 
And forced the clouds to lose their prize. 

The rains dissolved the last few tears 
That fell from now hard, glassy eyes. 



77 



\/ 



Bony bodies carved in space, 
Stony skin and solid face, 
Tools of the parent craft. 
Missiles in an earthly shaft; 
Shifting eyes and lonely brows. 
Restless as the chain allows. 
To leap an inch in secret space, 
Then held back in dark embrace. 
A bit of thought, a bit of deed, 
A light of hope. A jot of speed. 
And out — out of a dusty orb, 
From the grave, the stars absorb: 
Silver steel, trimmed and lined. 
Fleshy steel of humankind. 
Come — Come, I will absorb, 
Man into the starry orb. 
The brilliance of a setting sun, 
Is purple earth when wish is won. 
The heat tamed, fiery blast, 
A comet flam.ed, stellar mast. 
Faded home is swirling mist. 
Oblivion of truth — But some persist; 
Man forgets. Time remembers 
Burning ruin of living embers. 
Realizing from landed chars — 
A home among the space and stars.

There is no faith surrogate: for faith is the immediate 
instinct of the heart. The search does not end, but clues are 
found. This is the function of the individual: to transform 
each clue from something personal into something cosmic. Let 
us move from the brink of chaos to the shore of endless 
meaning. 

— Walter Reich
